The rest of us had come inside for the evening, but Roscoe wanted to stay outside. Hu-Dad asked him why he was taking so long. The look says it all—Roscoe was planning a climbing trip. Not a mountain, of course, or a rock cliff. No, Roscoe has tired of the nattering tree rats and has decided he wants to go catch a noisy squirrel. Treats may have been involved to convince him to come inside instead.
